Kick up your heels!

A bit of jollity: the final Bransle from a suite called "After Arbeau" — dances based on tunes from the high renaissance. Back in the 70s I was part of a consort that performed at renaissance fairs and meetings of the Society for Creative Anachronism, and this was always a popular finale. Here performed by "The Flying Buttress Family" in what is called a broken consort of cembalo, recorder, vielle, shawm, and dulcian. Go on, tap your toes, you know you want to!

Wonderful! Thanks, Tobias. The Flying Buttress Family? What a name!

I tapped my toes. I did.
